Hundreds of private hostels & paying guest accommodation are sprouting and flourishing in Bengaluru, yet there is not a single government department to keep an eye on them even after the administration has made registrations of paying guest accommodation mandatory. They do not follow the procedure of getting the guests registered. Heavy income is being generated with no share given to the government departments. Police has also failed to ensure whether it is a hostel or a residential building. Many owners are migrants from other states, who are running the PG's without license. Near Electronic city also there are some PG's of this kind. They neither give receipt for advance taken at the time of registration nor do they mention their account details if someone wants to directly transfer money (for paying monthly rent). They just want hard cash. And some kind of rowdyism is also done sometimes. Harassment is done using some politically influential people as support. No cleanliness whatsoever. Cleaning is done just once or twice a week (in standard, well-maintained PG's its done on a daily basis). There is no privacy whatsoever in some places. Serious action needs to be taken against this.
